Watch The FULL Interview With Syrian President Bashar al-Assad You're Not Seeing On TV
"The US Used Depleted Uranium In Iraq, Israel Used White Phosphorous In Gaza, And Nobody Said Anything About "Red Lines!'" Chris | InformationLiberation
There's a reason you're only getting snippets about Assad's supposed "chilling warning" of "repercussions" to the US if his country is invaded, it's because he calmly and succinctly exposed Obama and the US government's hypocrisy through and through.
For one, Assad says there's no evidence his regime used chemical weapons, but notes such illegal weapons were used by the US in Iraq and Israel in Gaza.
He says if the US has evidence his government carried out the chemical weapons attacks, then they should present it to the American people to judge, whom he notes are overwhelmingly against Obama's war.
Assad reminds Charlie the last time the US presented "evidence" of WMDs was Colin Powell at the UN making the case Iraq had WMDs (and could attack the US with them within 45 minutes"), which we all know now was a fabrication.
He makes so many good points you'd almost think he wasn't another slimy politician, though I had to laugh at one point because he says how the weapons the Syrian government has are legal because "they are the government," whereas the weapons the rebels have are illegal, because they're not the government. All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others.
